Planned Parenthood Association of Ghana: PPAG

Our History

PPAG was established in 1967 as a Non - Governmental Organization affiliated to the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF).

The Association has a long history of leadership in Family Planning programmes in Ghana and has pioneered many projects including Family Life Education (FLE) for the Youth, Male Clinics and the integration of Family Planning into Community Development Projects.

It is currently the leading Non-Governmental Organization providing Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) services in Ghana. The Association works to complement the efforts of government in providing healthcare and development for the nation.

In line with the ICPD program of action, the National Population Policy and the National Youth Policy, the Association has widened its scope from a focus on family planning focus to cover other Sexual and Reproductive Health needs.

Dr. Joseph Amuzu, Executive Director, PPAG

Mr. President, Council Members, Ladies and Gentlemen
I thank God for this day. In the 1990s there about, as a young and inexperienced public health physician in Kumasi, I dreamt of leading this organization even at that time. Since then, I have been following the progress of PPAG till today.  I again came in close contact with PPAG when I was the HIV Team Leader at USAID in 1998 and quite recently our paths crossed as the Director of Policy and Planning at the Ghana AIDS Commission.
